1,431 People Now on ADAP Waiting Lists in 11 States, Report Says

June 11, 2010

As of June 10, 2010, there were 1,431 individuals on AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) waiting lists in eleven states. This is a 116 percent increase from the 662 individuals on the March 2010 ADAP Watch. Twelve ADAPs, four with current waiting lists, have instituted additional cost-containment measures since April 1, 2009. In addition, seven ADAPs, including two with current waiting lists, are considering implementing new or additional cost-containment measures by the end of March 2011. States that have instituted cost containment measures and those considering them, in addition to implementing waiting lists, are reducing program eligibility, capping enrollment, reducing the number of drugs on the formulary and cutting other services, all of which impact access to life saving HIV medications for medically vulnerable individuals.

In these states they are just letting innocent people die. We have filed 11 cases re US EEOC / USDOE OCR DISCRIMIINATIONS VS PERSONS CANCER, DISABILITIES, CIVIL RIGHTS VIOLATIONS, TAXPAYING PRSONSS NEEDING MEDS, DISCRIMINATED AGAINS VIA JOBS, EMPLOYMENT, EDUATION, ETC. IN LOUISIANA, COLORADO,AND MISSISSIPPI AND ALL OF THE CASES, 20,000 PAGES OF INFO, ALL DUE PROCESS, ALL XHIBITS, APPEALS, ALL 11 CASES, 40 AMENDED CASES, 22 REFILED CASES, AND ALL FEDERAL, STATE, CONSTITUTIONAL LAWS, EEOC LAWS, USDOE OCR LAWS, THE CRA OF 1964, CONST AMEND 1, 5, 11, 14 EQUAL PROTECTION WAS DENIED AND OBSTRUCTED BY THE DEFENDANTS, COURTS, 4 USDC, MORE THAN 40 JUDGES (APPEAL COURT ADN USDC JUDGES), AND ALL APPEAL COURTS. THEY LIED, WROTE FALSE ORDERS, MADE FALSE CLAIMS, AND ILLEGALLY THREW THE CASES OUT.IN FACT IN ONE CASE THE JUDGE WAS AND STILL IS ON THE PAYROLL OF THE DEFENSE.

JUSTICE HAS CEASED IN THE US AND ALL FEDERAL AND STATE LAWS ARE BEING IGNORED FOR THE 99%, MINORITY, POOR, PAUPERS WHO CANNOT AFFORD LAWYERS, COLLEGE / UNIVERSITY STUDENTS, AND DISSABLED PERSONS WITHOUT MONEY / LAWYERS.
